The poems and prose of Calliope explore universal themes with grace, evocative imagery, poignancy, and humor. In “Waitress,” an overqualified young woman feels out of place in the restaurant where her mother worked for several summers. A grade-school foe displays her invincibility in “Playground: 1965.” In “A Lesson from Picasso,” tourists are transfixed by Guernica, and pulled into war’s horror. A family buries their beloved mother in “As If We Were Ancient Egyptians.” In a humorous piece, “The Pharmacy,”a quick tour of the drugstore reveals products for all of life’s ages and stages. A child is drawn into the dangerous “Spider Webs” of creepy Uncle Reno. Women everywhere will relate to these poems, essays, and short stories. Calliope is published annually by Women Who Write, Inc., a non-profit organization based in Louisville, Kentucky. www.WomenWhoWrite.comBUY ON AMAZON
